Annual Urology Teaching Day with Vassar Brothers Medical Center

We invite you to join Premier Medical Group and Vassar Brothers Medical Center for the annual Urology Teaching Day. This year’s focus will be on bladder cancer. This is a day provided by professionals, for professionals.

This activity is designed for physicians and allied health professionals in family practice, internal medicine, oncology, and urology, who care for patients with bladder cancer. Each of the presenters will allow ample time for questions and comments, inviting participants to reflect on the information which has been shared. This advanced professional conference provides “Cutting Edge” information, reviewing the latest advances in clinical strategies for diagnosis, staging, treatment, and follow-up of bladder cancer. The course will explore new insights into treatment approaches in patients with non-muscle and muscle-invasive bladder cancer and the benefit of local and systemic treatments in patients with bladder cancer.
